    I always do exhaustive testing before posting stuff and I can assure you for a lot of "Innocuous Fake websites" malwarebytes is totally useless.
    And for a lot of other webs sites it's not. You can always find sites MBAM won't flag but the many it does flag (from personal experience, no guessing involved) and the many times it has blocked outbound requests I will continue to use and highlty recommend it.

    You can continue your personal vendetta against them (that's what it seems like to me) but you are in the minority and are probably going to stay there for quite a while yet.

    Your opinions are as good as anyone's Jimbo. It just concerns me when I think what you are recommending can cause others to have unnecessary problems.

    Anyway, nuff said. You go your way, I'll go mine and we'll continue to disagree here but agree on many, many other things.

    Peace.

    Hi there

    That's fine

    however I think we both need to agree that users do need to be far better educated on how people commit fraud on the Internet these days - and it's not an easy task.

    Anyway no Vitriol intended and have a good weekend

    Cheers

    I absolutely agree with that, more education is the only way.
